>> this is a wbal-tv 11 editorial, from president and general manager dan joerres. >> since enhanced transportation security administration procedures were put in place a decade ago, life has changed for the flying public. the tsa has been reduced by the politicians who voted for the system. and mocked by the cast of "saturday night live." this is a security was needed. this system was designed for that reason. subsequent acts lead to the requirement for us to remove our shoes and to submit to pat- downs. we recognize the goal is safety for all of us. recent incidents of a thorough search of a child are selling
the reputation of the tsa. administrators say the procedures are being followed and they are for the protection of the public. it is in the best interests of passengers and the authorities to follow their procedures and in the best interests of the passengers to cooperate. what we hope is that callmer heads will prevail. we all remember the friendly skies and we want to keep them that way.
